Description

Life is finally looking up for 28 year old Shayla -- She’s got a great boyfriend and is about to start her dream writing job. But when it all falls apart in the space of one day, Shayla finds herself heartbroken and struggling to make ends meet. After a chance encounter with the world’s most popular K-pop idol, Youngjae, she decides to chase the fantasy and heads for South Korea in the hopes of kindling a relationship with the star.

There are a lot of ups —beautiful city, amazing food, dynamic culture and K-pop music everywhere, plus a new friend in Dal, an ex-idol with a chip on his shoulder who owns the 7-11 she lives above. But there are also downs — culture clashes, difficulty with the language, and Youngjae is a lot more popular than she realized. She likely isn’t going to just bump into on the streets of Seoul!

Moving to Korea might have been a mistake, but Shayla’s committed to see it through. With time running out on her 90-day visa she enlists an exasperated Dal to help her reconnect with Youngjae, but will their friendship become something more as he helps her chase her Y/N dreams?

Starring Susan Wokoma and Daniel Henney, with MeeWha Alana Lee, Amerjit Deu, Edward Hong, Joomin Hwang, Seong-Jae Kong, Hester Jean Lee, Jennifer Kim, Shawn Kim (aka Kim Goo), Lorna Laidlaw, Elsie Lovelock, Jessica Lee, Rae Lim, Helen Madelyn Kim, Eurie Nam, Jun Noh, J Sebastian Lee, Jennifer Sun Bell, Minje Sung, Marta Svetek, George Weightman, Clare Wille, MiJi Yi and June Yoon
